This paper develops some new Razumikhin-type theorems on global exponential stability of impulsive functional differential equations. Some applications are given to impulsive delay differential equations. Compared with some existing works, a distinctive feature of this paper is to address exponential stability problems for any finite delay. It is shown that the functional differential equations can be globally exponentially stabilized by impulses even if it may be unstable itself. Two examples verify the effectiveness of the proposed results.
